Right now I don’t know whether to laugh, cry or even whether I should be posting this card plus the other one I’ve done. Glaring mistake here and I did the same error on the other one. And I pride myself on my language skills … LOL!
Upon thinking about it, I’ve decided to go ahead so you can laugh too and I’m even entering it into the JUGs challenge which called for an embossing folder, and is why I made it in the first place.
I started with a piece of turquoise card stock and using an older 3D folder from Spellbinders I ran it through my Big Shot. Then I went over the raised parts with some white ink and set it to dry. Using a favorite frame die from PaperRose I die cut the stitched frame and ran it through a folder from Sizzix called Stitched Sequins. I added a bit of ink to the raised bits here as well. In retrospect perhaps I should have left them white. Anyway I glued the two parts together and then added them to the card front. Using a die from SSS that includes an outline to the letters I die cut the word and tried using a Jennifer McGuire trick to get them straight before adding glue to the backs. The result isn’t bad but I definitely need practice in using the technique she showed on her video. After adding the word underneath the main panel I added a few pearls to the floral part and some other gems at the sides of the frame. I set out to do the photograph and realized my huge mistake. Can’t believe I did this not only once but twice! Maybe my eye surgery has made my brain wonky, haha.
Here is the 2nd card with the same error as the previous one. I’ve been thinking about this while cooking the evening meal and have decided to fix the mistakes before I send them to anyone. As peeling the letters off will damage the base card I will probably cover it up with another piece of CS but I’m not sure yet. As well I’m not 100% sure I really like the results of either card. I really wanted to give the ideas that J. McGuire did in her recent tutorial a try, but mine certainly don’t have a wow factor that others I’ve seen do. Oh well – it is good to try and neither card is bin worthy. I’m sure I can redeem them before mailing, but perhaps not until after I’ve moved. For now I’m sharing to give others a laugh.
